Programs Supported by Your Donations
We have 3 meal plans to offer to clients and follow diets according to their needs. Delivery is Monday through Friday each week, including holidays, at lunchtime. Volunteers help us pack and deliver food each day and have needs for 17-28 volunteers per day. There are 3 paid part-time workers running the program.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, our client load went up 30-35%. Many clients have underlying issues and do not want to go out of their homes. Thirty of our volunteers have the same issues and are on hiatus from the program. We are following strict masking and cleaning/sanitizing protocols.
